Arrow to help clear Steam Packet freight backlog

All freight should be on Island early tomorrow

After days of Steam Packet sailing cancellations due to Storm Ciara, the MV Arrow is heading from Northern Ireland to Heysham to help get the backlog of freight over to the Island.

The cargo vessel is expected to arrive at the Lancashire port at 3pm.

Priority trailers will be carried on the afternoon Ben-my-Chree sailing from Heysham at 2.15pm.

The rest will then be carried by the Arrow.

It's hoped all freight will have been shipped over to the Island by 6.30am tomorrow morning.
